Eastern Red Cedar
Cost and availability
Although it's a softwood, hardwood grading standards apply because eastern red cedar is used primarily as a cabinet wood. Since clear wood is hard to come by, most eastern red cedar boards carry the "common" grading label, and a fairly inexpensive price of about $1.50 per board foot. Readily available boards rarely exceed 7" widths, 6'lengths, and 1" thicknesses. Veneers, plywood, and particleboard are other products.
